Very attractive, intense garnet red robe with a purplish crison meniscus. Powerful vinous bouquet with hints of black fruits, licorice and white peppercorn. After a fresh, mild attack, the palate becomes dense and generous with tannins that are already nicely mellow.

Created in 1862 by Victor Beylot, Ch teau Couperie was purchased in 1955 by Marcel Dassault, who renovated the estate as well as gave his name to it. Ch teau Dassault has been a Grand Cru Class since 1969. Laurent Dassault currently manages the estate with the same passion and pride as his grandfather. Since 1995, he and Director Laurence Brun Vergriette have been striving for maximum quality: draining the vineyard, reducing yields, applying pesticide management and trimming the leaves on both sides of the vine. All of this contributes to growing perfectly ripe, healthy grapes. The vat room was fully renovated and grapes are carefully inspected twice on vibrating sorting tables. The grapes from each vineyard are fermented separately, making it possible to fine-tune the final blend.
